SEATTLE—Starbucks said Wednesday it plans to open 12,000 new locations globally by 2021, an increase of nearly 50% on the coffee chain’s current store count worldwide. Over the next five years, the Seattle-based retailer intends to grow revenue by 10%, earnings per share by 15% to 20% and same-store sales by mid-single-digit percentages each year. The revenue and earnings growth plans include the channel development segment, with foodservice and packaged goods part of the mix.
